I've been keeping journals since I was in the 3rd grade and I'm so glad to share some of my most intimate life moments with you here!  Here, you'll find inspirational stories of clients, my journey as a wife and first-time mother and other adventures I have that makes my world go 'round. So please, sit back, grab some coffee ( or my personal favorite, a good ol' fashioned Arnold Palmer!) and enjoy exploring my latest work! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

welcome to my

journal!

NAOMI: THE SURVIVOR | CHESAPEAKE| SACHEL SAMONE | LOVE & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

The most beautiful people in the world are those who have known defeat; those who have known suffering…struggle, loss…and have found their way out of the depths of hopelessness. Beautiful people don’t just happen. They are made up of compassion, understanding, appreciation, peace, love and joy.

Ms. Naomi is a beautiful person.

Ms. Naomi is a survivor.

LOVELY

In April 2006, Naomi found out she had Stage 3B Inflammatory Breast Cancer. She decided against chemo and seven years later, at age 78, she is continuing to enjoy life with her family.

Her favorite scripture is Psalms 23 and she says that along with her faith, her family keeps her going everyday. Her strength and more importantly her faith is so inspirational.  She doesn’t feel sorry for herself, but rather she finds a reason to smile and laugh. HOW AMAZING IS THAT?!?!

SURVIVOR

Watching her interact with her daughter Natalie and her grandchildren, Nicole and Leslie just warmed my heart!! It reminded me so much of the joy I share with my sisters and mom (or as I love to call them, my girlfriends)!!

Naomi just sparkles. Not only is she physically beautiful (seriously, have you looked at her eyes?!?), but her inner beauty is undeniable. She is a reminder to me to always appreciate life and when it tries to get you down, smile hard and pray harder.

Thank you Ms. Naomi for allowing me the honor of spending time with you and your girls. You have left an imprint on my heart.

BEAUTY

    This is absolutely beautiful. And Yes! Ms. Naomi is a survivor AND an inspiration to many women. I am proud to call her my aunt and I am so proud of her story, testimony and journey. There have been many days that God has reminded me of what He can do by bringing her experience and triumph to my memory. Now, when I feel scared because of my family history and become to concerned with the probability of this effecting me, I think about aunt Nemie, her faith and godly walk and I have confirmation all over again that God is a healer. I am so grateful for this page and am excited to share with my sister-girls. I feel so blessed to be loved by my aunt Nemie. I am sending you love and a big hug from Alpharetta Georgia! Also the pictures are stunning! What a beautiful set of women! -Christina Drake

  5. Mother Naomi has always been a source of inspiration and I am glad she is still among the living! I love you Mother Naomi and I thank you for all of your love, support and words of wisdom that you have shared with me over the past 23 years. Keep on Keeping On!
